    I'm looking for a decent quality scope for my Eddystone. I'd like a 4 to something or a 5 to something by whatever.

    I currently have a like new 2-7 x 32 Bushnell Elite 3200 on it that I'd be willing to trade and add some ammo or cash to even the deal.

    Is anybody interested?

    Never mind. I'm swapping the Bushnell 2 x 7 - 32 out for a Nikon Team Primus 3 x 9 - 40 next Friday. My buddy at the gun shop is swapping scopes out for $80 including mounting. It's a great deal considering the Bushnell was free. ;)

    That should get me out to 300+ yards comfortably. I want to be able to get out up to 500 yards and the Nikon has a bullet drop compensator which should help my old eyes.

    Supposedly the Team Primus scope is actually a Monarch, so it's a great deal.

    I know you'll like the Nikon Monarch (cause you've had one before)!! Clarity like I've never seen through a scope before!!

    Well done CA!!

    Thanks Duner.

    Friday I'll buy the scope, then I'll leave it with my buddy to mount and I'll pick it up Tuesday. Ordinarily I would mount it myself, but those old Buehler rings are a chore. I'm taking off for the weekend around noon or so, so I'll pick it up when the shop reopens on Tuesday.

    CA357,
    CONGRATS!! on the new scope.

    I'm currently looking for a 3-9x40 for my Marlin 30/30 model 336.
    I would like to get a Leupold, but a Nikon Buckmaster will do also.

    Underfire, take a look at the Team Primus. It's a step up from the Buckmaster into the Monarch line. The pricing on them is unbelievable, they're a super value.
